VA’s Mobile Outreach Clinic making two stops in Sussex

MILLSBORO – The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs’ (VA) Mobile Outreach Clinic is making two stops this week in Sussex County.

The mobile clinic will be at Oak Orchard/Riverdale American Legion Post 28 in Millsboro today, Jan. 13, and Thursday, Jan. 14 at Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 7234 in Ocean View.

Hours are 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. both days.

Outreach services include:

  • Primary care services including management of acute and chronic illnesses, women’s health issues, and patient education.
  • Immunizations (including flu and pneumonia vaccines); lab services (including blood draws, urine specimens, etc.)
  • A Medical Support Assistant (MSA) will be available to schedule appointments and answer administrative questions.
  • A social worker will be available for behavioral health referrals and identify available resources.

Veterans seeking care at the Mobile Outreach Clinic need to be enrolled with the VA to receive service.

Those who have not yet enrolled with the VA can do so at the mobile clinic to become eligible for service in the future.  Veterans should bring two forms of identification and their DD Form 214 (certificate of release or discharge from active duty military service).

Appointments are preferred, but walk-ins are welcome.
